We’re continuing the Thanksgiving festivity and fun and adding it to the lunch menu. I have found that when you add a stick, almost everything tastes better to kids; lol! So, why not add it to the sandwich? These turkey’s were so easy to make & are a perfect serve any time this month, especially useful for thanksgiving left-overs the weekend after.
How did we make ours? It was very easy!
1 wrap or flat bread
1 tablespoon light ranch dressing (we love the veggie ranch made with yogurt by Marzetti)
Red Bell Pepper Strips
Orange Bell Pepper Strips
Yellow Bell Pepper Strips
Sliced turkey (amount contingent on the size of the wrap or flatbread used)
Slice 2% American cheese (amount contingent on the size of the wrap or flatbread used)
1/2 cup spinach, fresh baby leaf
1 baby carrot stick
3 – 4″ candy/cake pop sticks
Spread the ranch dressing on to the wrap, add the turkey and a layer of the fresh baby spinach and top it off with the slice of cheese. Roll the wrap and slice it. Use the candy/cake pop sticks to hold it together by inserting it into the wrap and creating a sandwich pop of sorts.
Lay down three slices of each pepper for each sliced & skewed round to sit on top to create the feathered effect. Slice the grapes in half lengthwise. Cut the baby carrot in half lengthwise and slice three triangular shapes from one side. Using a sharp knife, create a slice into the grape towards one end to insert the carrot triangle. Place them on top of the round to serve as the turkey’s head.
Note: You can always swap the inside of the wrap with your kid’s favorite combination & try using a whole grain wrap for a new taste testing bite. Also, depending on the wrap or flatbread used, most likely this process could make more than three turkeys and feed more than one person.
Thanksgiving Left-overs: Try spreading a light layer of stuffing, add thinly sized turkey, baby spinach leaf and a mixture of cranberry sauce and mayo for the spread.
